With the identification and acceptance of more learning impairments and other mental and emotional disabilities, there has been an increase in the number of children who require special education. In these cases, there are several important legal consequences that affect the child, the family, and the school district.
Here, Professor Mary Noe of St. John’s University addresses the litany of legal issues involved with special education law, including IDEA and resources available under the law. Professor Noe explores relevant Supreme Court decisions in addition to offering practical advice on how to tackle these matters.
I. Understand the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)
II. Recognize the applications of the Individualized Education Program (IEP)
III. Establish the legal requirements of Special Education Related Services
IV. Identify the need for impartial hearings when reviewing IEPs
V. Address the need for tuition reimbursement when children are placed in private schools
Professor Mary Noe is a graduate of Brooklyn College (Magna Cum Laude) and St. John’s University School of Law. She was admitted to practice in New York in 1989.

This was an amazingly informative program. Thank you.
Good substance. Didn't know much about this area before listening.
happy to have educational law as a hot topic
Narrow focus on a specific area of law new to me., but I was able to discern the big picture need to expand my knowledge base.
This was a wonderful speaker about a very dense subject. I think as an overview, this was a great lecture.
Interesting topic. Did not know about IEPs
Including the Jeopardy-style questions in the presentations was a great way to keep the audience alert. Great presenter.
I'd like to see more programming on IEPs, FAPE, and IDEA.
very narrow specific focus
That was interesting
